I don't think a "wrapper" is anywhere near the meaning of a "hack". Most of the things we see posted here on HN probably involve more work and creation. Not saying that such a wrapper is not valuable, just that I think this response just intends to point out a fact. To say it's a "derision" is way too reactive. So would you rather nobody point out the fact at all and just leave it be? That would be a far worse situation IMO.
